Inceptor Primaris - On the Painting Block

Hey all,


So I'm off to Chicago for a week from tomorrow so its going to be another quiet old month from me on the blog. Sadly not for holiday but to attend a work conference, and as Serena is unwell I'd really rather not be going, but this is a fairly important conference and I'm presenting some exciting new stuff so ho-hum. 

Previously I've shown you the predominantly red/orange (reranged?) Primaris paint scheme, this is actually just the scheme for the sergeant ranks and above, the rank and file will have the inverse scheme of being primarily a dark dull grey with the reranged applying to the point plates. 

This inceptor also shows off where I am going with the bases, I am particularly pleased with the stone painting. I still need to add some varied foliage to the base for contrast, but its nearly there. I have discovered with this scheme that I am pretty much going to be painting them one at a time, as the style and colours are really tricky for me to grasp, so its going to be a slow burn army. Hopefully that should be offset by the Wraith Army coming that has a luxuriously simple scheme!! 






I'm very pleased with this chap overall so far, just need to crack on with the jump pack and head and then I think I might enter him into the monthly painting competition that GW hold on facebook. This months category is models from Dark Imperium and I'd like to show him off a little :)

Peace out,

Rob

  1. Like it, and you've avoided the ballet or slipping on a puddle look to the rather awkward pose of the legs. Nice inverted scheme.

    1. The rocks give it a bit of dynamism lost with the weird floaty stem things

    1. She's much better now thanks :) I was thinking of doing the Gravis Captain, but the speed at which I'm painting these I didn't think he'd get done in time :/

  4. Sorry to hear your lady love is unwell; traveling for work when you are needed at home really sucks. I love your new colour scheme! Great job with the rock as well, I know how hard it is to make them look natural and you have done wonderfully, bravo!

    1. Thanks Marc :) I'm hoping the scheme will really pop in numbers as well. Yay rock praise!

  5. Looking good! I do like schemes that get inverted for certain Models/Units. Hopefully it will get easier for you as you get more practice in with it.

    1. I hope it does as well, just swamped with other painting right now, I dearly want to dedicate all my time to this, but life and commissions do not allow!
